Go Behind the Scenes of 'Downton Abbey' [Exclusive Video]

Yahoo TV

Good news, “Downton Abbey”-ers: If you don’t want to wait until the end of February to see the rest of Season 4 unfold, the show is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on Jan. 28.

And to celebrate the release, PBS Distribution is giving Yahoo TV readers an exclusive first look at one of the bonus features: a behind-the-scenes clip in which the crew shares a peek at just how hard they work to produce the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series.

It takes 13 days to film one episode of the drama, executive producer Liz Trubridge shares in the clip, which means a whole day’s worth of filming produces four to five minutes of footage shown on screen, according to director David Evans.

A crew member also shares that the impeccable look of the series is a result of great attention paid to the smallest detail, including a commitment to making sure not a single hair is out of place among the cast.

Elsewhere on the DVD and Blu-ray releases, fans who are still shaken up by this season’s shocking storyline with Anna have a treat awaiting them in the series’ annual Christmas special: guest appearances by Shirley MacLaine as Cora’s mother, Martha Levinson; and Paul Giamatti as Harold Levinson, Cora’s playboy brother.

“Downton Abbey: Season 4” will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on Jan. 28 from PBS Distribution. “Downton Abbey” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on PBS.
